Authoring a DVD in FCPX
on Nov 22, 2019 at 11:47:10 am

I need to send a client a DVD for duplication and Adobe have decided that despite me paying a large amount of money per month, they aren't going to let me use Encore anymore even on an old system (Joys of the cloud subscription!)

FCPX does everything I want though apart from it INSISTS on adding a title with duration timestamp on the menu like a 1990s DVD recorder, does anyone know how I might be able to delete this?

Where are you seeing that?
Maybe your player is showing that cause I cant seem to replicate it.

If I burn a Disc or DVD folder it sits at the top of the menu no matter what template I use, even if I replace the background. I've tried playing on a couple of players and my Mac and it's "burnt in"

Can you make a menu without the title and time duration appearing at the top? If so I wonder what's different

Do you have access to DVDStudio Pro? Toast also makes DVDs. I have a set up in Los Angeles with a Mac Pro (OSX 10.6.8) with FCP 7 and the suite.

I tried Toast, it does work but there's almost zero customisation on the templates so even if you put your own background on, the fonts are horrible and it looks like a slightly more advanced DVD recorder from the 1990's! However at this rate it's going to be my only option!

Sadly my DVDSP is long gone, I miss it!

Try this, when you go into the "share to DVD" dialog, leave the title empty or with just a period. Also, there's a box below the title box that says: this vdvd is about"... blank out whatever's in there as well. Come back and say if this worked.

Nope, doesn't work. It still displays the FCPX project name and duration, utterly useless and infuriating, why would anyone think this was required in a "professional" piece of software?

Reading this thread I followed a link to this free DVD authoring : DVDstyler
I did some test and found that it is quite customizable , this might help....

It's partly FCPX but it's also whatever is playing your finished disc that is fetching and displaying the metadata. The trick would be to delete that particular piece of metadata, or find an optionint he layer that turns off the demonstration of the file name.

I miss DVDSP every week.

Thanks Mark and everyone, I just gave up in the end and used Toast Titanium Pro, it seems to have done the job, interestingly it still displayed that same metadata at first on the menu but you do have the option to remove it!
